Wander the halls of Chepstow Castle, the oldest surviving stone castle in Britain. Standing majestically for more than six centuries, this castle has been the former home of some of the most powerful and influential men in medieval history. Visit Chepstow Museum across the road and learn about the town’s rich past. Displayed in the galleries are several memorabilia of Chepstow’s past on wine trade, shipbuilding, and salmon fishing. The exhibits also feature a number of paintings dating back from the 18th and 19th century.
